The research is related to the Uplink power control for 4G LTE which is to evaluate the system performance using the coding in MATLAB. The primary objective of this thesis is to design a cellular network environment which has 1050 users which are distributed in seven cells with directional antennas. The total environment is set up in MATLAB and the performance is evaluated for different values of path-loss compensation factor. Considering the fractional compensation and full compensation the LTE system analysis is compared for both open loop power control system and closed loop power control system as well. The performance is evaluated with the uplink signal to noise to interference ratio which is measured. Using the Shannon capacity, the bit rate is calculated. The distribution of the users for closed loop power control algorithm is collaborated with the Nash equilibrium from microeconomics and conclusions are drawn.
